Kings Square Project Precinct Meeting

by dgeorgieva on 26 June 2017

DATE FOR THE DIARY

FICRA meeting with Mayor Brad Pettit & City Ward Councilor Rachel Pemberton

‘Kings Square Project’

Tuesday, July 4th at 6pm

Fairweathers, Notre Dame University,
(old Fremantle Hotel) corner of High and Cliff Street

Dear inner city residents and friends

We have been contacted by City Ward Councillor Rachel Pemberton advising that The Kings Square project will be getting underway in coming months and that The Mayor and City Ward Councillors Pemberton and Naber thought it provides a special opportunity/reason to attend meetings of various City of Fremantle Precincts to update Fremantle residents on the project, answer questions and try to address any concerns local residents may have.

We have therefore accepted the offer of our elected representatives and organised a FICRA Precinct meeting for this purpose.

The main focus will be for the Mayor and Councillors to engage with local residents about the coming changes (and possible disruption) to the City centre however they are prepared to address questions or comments on any issue.

The FICRA Committee hopes you will be able to join us in attending this meeting. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (9335-4516).

Best wishes,

Maryrose Baker, FICRA Convenor

Four years ago FICRA, along with the J Shed artists and Fremantle Roundhouse Volunteer Guides commenced the opposition to the development of a massive tavern for 400-800 people on Arthur Head at J Shed by Sunset Venues PTY LTD.

Two years ago the City awarded Sunset a 21 year lease for Unit 1 and Sunset then engaged in a temporary activation of this site over October 2015 – April 2016.

In September 2016 the WA Planning Commission rejected the Sunset Events development application.
Sunset Events have not undertaken any further activation of Unit 1 since April 2016. The commencement date of the 21 year lease is July 1st and Sunset are required to fill the lease performance obligations and pay rent from this date.
However Sunset has now applied for a one year delay in the commencement of their obligations under the lease.
FICRA has responded to this application to the City in the attached submission which has been sent to the Mayor and other members of the ‘Finance Policy Operations and Legislation Committee’ (Submission of FICRA (82)).

This matter was considered by the Committee on Wednesday, June 14 and FICRA was there representing residents. The matter is to be decided upon by full council at the end of June.

Maryrose Baker
Convenor, FICRA
